lib/Parrot/Configure/, in sub cc_clean, is trying to 
clean up its test compiles by 'unlink glob <test.*>'.
This fails to remove 'test', the executable name under 
Unixes, because it has no extension. Also, the unlink is
unnecessarily aggressive; it might remove 
'test.o.i_saved_for_a_reason. created all the test 
files, and it should know how to enumerate them during 
cleanup. This patch teaches it how.

Hope this helps,
Bruce Gray
